Seeing Opportunity in the Conveyancing Skill Gap

The concerns raised in my post last week on the risks of a hot market are reinforced by a survey in the Law Gazette showing the conveyancing boom exposes a skills gap.

What's clear from the survey is that either solicitors are faced with too much to do and not enough manpower, OR have manpower that doesn't have enough experience, potentially raising their risk profile. Both present a clear opportunity for change.

The long period of retrenchment that has left solicitors and their firms with a need to " start the conveyor belt all over again" with hiring should instead be seen as an opportunity to find new tools and processes for the conveyancing process. Working smarter is the future, not working more or with more people.
